Oak Ridge, TN | July 2020 - January 2021
The Salt Storage Facility comprised excavation, site grading, and concrete pad pours for erection of a new 65ft x 70ft salt storage facility engineered by Britespan Building Systems, Inc. Working with the design teams from both Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Britespan, JBrennon modified existing drawings to suit site conditions and budget, ORNL requirements, and Britespan performance capabilities. JBrennon self-performed 75% of the scope of work including excavation of over 1200 cubic yards of unsuitable soils and replacement with 1,100+ cu yds suitable soil and compacted stone; hauling operations; proof-rolling; footing and pier construction; site surveying; site grading; site excavation; installation of temporary fencing, erosion control check dams and silt fencing; construction of temporary fuel enclosure stations; operation of over 6 types of equipment; and concrete placement and finishing of two 60 x 60ft slabs. Additionally, three vertical concrete walls were constructed within the salt shed interior. Subcontracted work included installation of underground electrical and water lines, backflow preventer; and new site lighting and panel systems.
